Great I will try to make this one
how did the walk go today? i coulnt make it
Well, despite some minor obstacles the crowd again made it to the gate at Mounthawk. And this time the rain wasn’t nearly as bad as ath the october walk, although this time we a hail shower 🙂 But seriously, it was another great event with lots of support. Thanks again to Mike for the delicious brownies and all the stuff. I think were getting closer to the opening of the cycle way each time we meet.
P.S. sorry for all the typos, my hands are still cold…
when can it be opened as a walk and cycle way?
I think I worded the part with the opening quite poorly. As far as I know there is not even an actual date set for the building process to start. What I meant is that it is very encouraging to see that sustained level of support from the community even in less than ideal conditions like today and last time. There still is some opposition to the project (which again was clearly visible today), but I think we have a real chance to make it happen in the not to distant future. The more support is there the sooner it will happen I guess. I think the many children – apart from having a lot of fun today in the mud – learned a valuable lesson today.
i suppose they did
was the rail track still down where ye walked today?
Yes the rails are still down.
Hadn’t time to look but feel free to check it yourself stevie.
The tracks have not been lifted yet. They are in the bushes to the left (viewing uphill) and quite overgrown, but clearly visible in most places. A small number of track parts is stacked right behind the gate at Mounthawk, but they don’t seem to have moved in a long time too. A bit surprising since all that metal must be quite valuable right now, but yes – they are still there Stevie.
I must take a walk on the line myself someday
